Understanding & troubleshooting LoadXtend staple magazine
Here are instructions that will help you understand how the LoadXtend
magazine works and whether it magazine works correctly.
Basic principles behind the LoadXtend magazines are that they are gravity fed
when filled with several strips of staples, but operate in a conventional way
with a spring loaded pusher when fewer than one strip remains. This is achieved
with its exclusive pusher locks in a pre-armed
position. Mains features of LoadXtend are:
allowing strips to go over the pusher, extending the capacity of the magazine to 4 strips in an
assembly no longer than a conventional one; and up to 6 strips in the Elbow configuration.
- quick loading - simply insert strips and arm the pusher.
- allowing to reload the magazine at any time, even if still half-full.
- cannot be overloaded
Loading LoadXtend magazine with flooring staples
- Insert up to 3 strips of flooring staples into the back of the magazine.
Pull the pusher back completely and release it until it locks in position.
It will not lock in its pre-armed position if fewer than 3" of staples,
but it will engages behind the strip as a conventional magazine.
After, you can add a 4th strip of staples after the pusher is
lock, albeit it will slightly overhang from the magazine.
To remove staples from the magazine, pull back completely & hold the
pusher; and tilt the tool to slide back remaining staples.
Troubleshooting the LoadXtend magazine
- Put two rows of staples in the magazine.
Pull the pusher back completely and release it until it locks in its pre-armed position.
You should hear a "click" when it's locking.
Check that all strips of staples slide easily in the magazine. It is
important because they are fed by gravity until the pusher disengages from
its pre-armed position. A pusher that is not locked correctly could
With the two rows of staples in the magazine and the pusher in its locked
in its pre-armed position, apply slight pressure downward the pusher. It
should remain in its lock position.
With the tool in its standing position, remove all strips but one. If the pusher disengages from its
pre-armed position, the magazine is operationg correctly.
If the pusher stays engaged, kick the magazine with the rubber end of the
hammer to simulate vibration the tools is subjected to during
normal cycle. This should disengage the pusher
from its pre-armed position.
